Is a Leather Jacket Worth It?

Leather jackets are timeless classics, hailed as a fashion staple for decades. Although leather jackets are one of the most popular garments in the Western world, genuine high quality leather jackets aren’t as commonly seen as you might expect. A recognisable high street brand name doesn’t always (and often doesn’t) equate to quality, especially in the leather jacket world.

A true quality leather jacket inevitably comes with a higher price tag, which often leaves people wondering if investing in a leather jacket is worth it.


In a remarkable collaboration that merges the worlds of history, entertainment, and vintage recreation clothing, Aero Leathers have been commissioned to replicate a series of authentic World War II flight jackets for Apple TV’s upcoming show “Masters of the Air”.

This partnership is a testament to Aero Leather Clothing’s unparalleled craftmanship and our unique ability to replicate original World War II flight jackets – a skill that only a handful of companies worldwide can claim.
